Awesome, lightweight, perfect for heat
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: XS
I bought this in an XS, and it fit perfectly. The drawstring took a bit of finagling to get sorted out, but it's super forgiving. The material is incredibly lightweight and does great in hot, humid circumstances. It dries ridiculously fast, and packs down into practically nothing. It does get a little staticky at times. I like that it has sun protection built in.
The only things I don't absolutely love about it are a.) because it's so lightweight, anything I put in the pockets drags it down a bit. The pockets fit my phone easily, but the dress will sag unless I actively work at it. And b.) because I got it in a light color, I had to make sure my underthings were appropriately colored, which is more of an mild inconvenience than an actual problem.
It's really well made; all of the seaming is beautiful and sturdy. I've washed it a bunch of times and it still looks like I just got it. I look forward to wearing it for many years.
